Increased flight options out of YPR subject of local on line survey

The quest for better air connections between Prince Rupert and Vancouver is always a popular topic on the North Coast and the Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Office have combined forces to seek out some feedback from the community.

An online survey is currently underway, offering local residents the opportunity to answer a number of questions about flight opportunities to Vancouver.

The survey is a fairly short process, with only three questions involved offering up a number of options, which would make use of Hawkair as the proposed carrier of the additional flights.

Those taking part will be asked if accessing an early morning flight out of Prince Rupert would be of benefit to their travel plans, with a variety of options available to select as to departure from Prince Rupert and arrival in Vancouver.

Likewise, a late evening flight option is also being explored, with a range of options as to an arrival time in Prince Rupert.

The background to the survey is to gauge support locally for earlier and later flights, so as to allow for same-day meeting and medical appointments in Vancouver and to perhaps provide for a better range of connections out of Vancouver International Airport.

The desire for increased flight options out of the Prince Rupert airport is one issue that could help repatriate some of those from the North Coast, that currently make the trip to Terrace to access the larger listing of departures and arrivals from that airport.

Those interested in learning more about the topic and taking the survey can access it here.
